This week:  “Jesus & His Hometown”

All of us come from somewhere. Perhaps you hail from a big city like Tulsa – or from one of its four large suburbs. Maybe you were raised in a village like Andy Griffith’s ‘Mayberry’ (Blanchester, OH), or even a much smaller town (Twin Oaks, OK). Or, perhaps you grew up in a town with a population of 5-10 thousand (Jenks used to be this…now the population is 22, 517 {2017}).
Jesus had a hometown, too, and its name, of course, was Nazareth. During His 3-year ministry, Scripture records for us that He only returned home twice. We really don’t know why, either. Perhaps He missed His mother, and wanted to catch up with His half-brothers and half-sisters. Maybe He simply wanted to escape the crowd, and return home for some much needed R&R. Whatever the reason, Jesus discovered (in the words of the old phrase), “You Can Never Go Home Again.”
Have you experienced this, too? Let’s examine Jesus’ two – and only two – trips back to His hometown.
